    I've had this issue for quite a while now, I've tried searching and found lots of others having the same issue but no resolution.

    I figure it's a loose connection somewhere but I've stripped the thing down, unplugged everything except the CPUs, air-blasted everything and re-assembled but with no joy.

    It only needs a gentle nudge and it goes, it's quite frustrating, especially with a 3 year old running around and bumping my desk at inopportune moments!

    Has anyone else had/solved this issue?

    I did have the same issue when I moved
    Fortunately I pulled the video and Ram risers out.
    Blew them off, put them back in and for me, all is well.
    Can u put the case somewhere it can't be bumped?
